Pin-up style weddings...

My sisters co-wroker is getting married and wants a pin-up style themed wedding...  Do any of you girls have any useful pictures, websites, "real" wedding, ideas, etc. that I could send her way....  Just wanted to brainstorm some stuff to send her way- I haven't found much yet???


THANKS!

Hi Holy,


 I would suggest this site. It has super super cute tutorials and pictures of how to achieve the perfect pin-up girl hair and make-up. They have more than 1 video and they're super easy to follow along. She could also have the girls and her wear open toed pumps ina  red or black; those to me are super pin-up.


 


For decorations, that's kinda tough. I thought maybe about having frames on each table with a black and white photo of the bride and groom. Kinda gives it a vintage look and is really classy.


 


I'm sorry I can't think of anything else right now, but I definetely wanted to share that site with you.


 


Also, on youtube if you search for a gril anmed Sarah Victor she does a lot of hair and make-up tutorials and theres a few where she does the glam/ pin-up look. She also shows you how to create a cute beehive (I believe that's what the hairdo is call). It's super cute!!


 


Best of luck!

I love 40's and 50's pin-up art!!!  I actually have a room in my house decorated that way that was DIY!  Mostly what I used was one of those page-a-day calanders, I just clipped out the art.  The cutest pin-up artist in my opinion is Gil Elvgren - here is a link that features some calendars that include his art:  http://www.yellowairplane.com/Air_Calendars/2008_Aircraft_PinUp_Calendars.htm


Alberto Vargas is also very well known, however his art has a bit more nudity - probably not something you would want to decorate a wedding with...

I was going to refer you to www.offbeatbride.com too. I've seen a lot of reference on there for a pin-up theme.


Good luck!

Thanks girls!  I haven't seen much out there on this- but I think its really going to come down to the details details details


It will be all those little things that make her theme come together... Attire, decor, style, songs, ect.
